Jolene Navarro here, checking in from the Texas Hill Country. We have rolled into month two of a new year and today is Monday. The first day of a new week!
As a writer, I spend a great deal of time in front of the computer. I also teach art downtown San Antonio which is an hour drive each way.
With all that time sitting, my health was slipping. Two years ago in February, I got a wake-up call. I needed to move more.
So I made a vow to walk and dance as much as possible. (Right now, I’m totally in love with the soundtrack fro THE GREATEST SHOWMAN. Have you seen it?) One of the things I love doing is taking pictures. Living in Texas there is so much beauty around me. I use my walking to get inspired, to talk with God and take in the world he created.
Organizing my files I found those pictures scattered all across Texas and all over my computer that I had taken over the last two years.
These three were taken during the winter in my hometown.
After the wonderful moodiness of winter is the colorful joy of spring. The Texas Hill Country comes alive with wildflowers. These were all taken on the walks around our house.
Spring slides right into summer. I have to admit I do more dancing inside when it gets to 100. It gets hot in Texas, but if you’re out early enough you can enjoy the view. I also recommend staying close to the water. We do have plenty of rivers and lakes.
After a long hot summer, fall is welcomed…short but a nice break from the heat.
What kind of things do you do to keep your body moving? Do you have a favorite time of year to be outdoors?
If you want to know more about my Texas you can pick up any of my books. They are based on my Texas.
